Photo-A-Day: Tiny

The present bane of my life is mice. Too many of them. Such tiny creatures that causes big problems. I had been hearing the noises in the walls and the little pitter-patter across the floor early in the morning — actually running under my chair while I was writing in the pre-dawn hours — for weeks. I set up traps to no avail. I shifted them several times, and still the little blighters managed to evade my ambush.

Until I found the hole. Then I placed a trap strategically, right in front of said hole, and another trap a few metres away. Needless to say, I have since caught several mice trying to invade my home. All that remains is to seal the gap they’ve gnawed through my skirting board and throw some bait up in the roof. Problem solved.

But, I am reminded of that verse which says “Catch for us the foxes,  the little foxes that ruin the vineyards,  our vineyards that are in bloom,” from Song of Solomon 2:15. Sometimes we allow little sins to run riot in our life. We might be sorry and try to change, but unless we get to the source, where the temptation lies and be honest with ourselves, we’re not really going to rout out those things and see a difference in our lives.

So, let’s get those little foxes and mice, and make our houses and hearts clean again. 🙂
